Abou Diaby: Expected to be out of action until Christmas

The France international suffered knee ligament damage in March and is expected to be sidelined until Christmas.

Diaby has been a regular in the treatment room throughout his time at Emirates Stadium, preventing him from taking in prolonged spells in the Gunners first team.

He hopes to be able to put those troubles behind him as he closes on another comeback, with Arsene Wenger having putting considerable faith in the 27-year-old.

Diaby is currently working his way back to full fitness at the French national training centre in Clairefontaine and is expecting to step up his recovery over the coming weeks.

He told L'Equipe: "I have come off the crutches. Now I have to start walking again!

"I will start running again in a few weeks.

"I want to take my time with everything to ensure that it all goes smoothly."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
